At Cyclone, we believe that nothing beats the joy and simple pleasures in growing your own food. We know that being able to grow your own produce at home is important for people’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
That’s why we’ve launched Backyard Farmer, a range of products designed to support everyday people in their food production journey, from propagation and growing to harvesting and composting.
Whether it’s a lemon tree by the clothesline, herbs by the back door, a passionfruit vine on the fence or a veggie patch in the backyard, we’re here to help you along your journey for the entire growing lifecycle.
EXTRA WIDE LEAF RAKE
We’ve given the garden rake a face lift. With a huge 760mm head and uniquely shaped tines, you can rake up to 45% more leaves per sweep* with the new Cyclone Extra Wide Leaf Rake.
Perfect for collecting leaves, lawn clippings, twigs and garden debris, the rake features a 100% virgin polypropylene head for maximum durability & a lightweight aluminium handle for perfect balance.
*Under real life testing this rake captured 45% more leaves per motion than a comparable width, standard triangular rake.
THE HISTORY OF CYCLONE TOOLS
In the early 1890s, Leonard Chambers and William Thompson started a beekeeping supply business in Melbourne.
In 1898, they launched Cyclone Fence & Gate Company to provide wire fencing for hives. By the 1920s, the company was manufacturing a range of innovative products in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Perth. Cyclone wire fencing and gates were prized by Australian farmers, bushies and graziers for their strength and by city dwellers for their innovative designs and styles.
Over the years Cyclone expanded into other products lines, providing tools such as shovels, edgers, axes, forks, pruners and loppers.
